Leanne is a mentor for all of us on the technical/science end of the food ingredient industry, lending us her invaluable expertise to our sales efforts. She is a food technologist by training, graduating from Oregon State University in 1985 with a degree in Food Science. Experienced in product development of spice blends, soups, and frozen potatoes. Leanne has also been involved with project management and is a resource on the various ingredients used in food products.
A trusted friend you can always count on, she also has a big heart for dogs, especially one little ginger-colored buddy named Roux - her French Bulldog. In the summers you’ll find her working in her garden at home (trying to get her brown thumb to turn green) or pruning the vines of Haehlstorm Vineyards. On quiet winter evenings, Needlework and Reading are her favorite go-to activities unless she is yelling at the television for a Mariners hit!
